The ALSOK Group realizes the importance of providing shareholder returns and thus prioritizes this in its management activities. Further, it regards the stability of shareholder dividends and the continuity of operations as important management issues. It therefore makes distributions to shareholders that reflect its business performance while also balancing the need to maintain internal reserves. These internal reserves are used to invest in R&D for future growth and development, qualitative upgrades to information systems and capital investment for new businesses. Through such investments, ALSOK works to improve its business performance and increase its corporate value from the viewpoint of its shareholders and other investors.
